Hello, i use a old paint brush to put the PVC glue onto a models base but i would like to ask you how you go about it? Is this a good way to get it on the base?
Depends what you are putting the glue on for:
- Sand/grit/small bits of stone etc for scenery. I use a big, cheap childs paint brush and thinned down PVA glue and then apply the sand on top of the mixture. The brush has quite stiff bristles and cost me very little (less then £1) from a stationary store. Its cheap, quick and very easy. You can get several different size brushes (still very cheap) to fit into different sized gaps (like between a models feet etc). I find stiff bristles are better, as the weight and viscosity of PVA makes soft bristle brushes (like old painting brushes) far less precise for this job.
- To attach big bits of rock/styrofoam or the like to a base. I don't even bother with PVA for this; I find a glue gun to be so much better for the job that I use that instead.
Hope this helps mate.
Hey thanks rp252, its just that i use one of my many paint encrusted brushes and was just wondering if theres a better way or how the more veteran gamers go about it. But i guess were both doing the same thing so that must be the best way of getting that glue were it needs to be
